156 Spong Removal
I have recently spoken to a so-called Alfa Romeo Specialist who informed me that it would be a good idea to remove the black sponge set's underneath each top corner of the bonnet as leaving these in apparently causes them to store water and rust the car from the inside out in that area.
If you lift up your bonnet these are located at the top left and right bonnet corners and there are 2 per corner and black in colour.
Now, me being me assumed that AR installed these for a reason, can you tell me if I am right or if he is?
My first guess would be to stop any leaks coming through the footwell's etc...
Any advice is appreciated as I am not sure if he is talking a load of old tosh, lol
